A Touch Of Positivity

I was feeling a bit, oh, I dunno…..blah…..on Monday lol. Thank you for your kind and helpful comments πŸ™‚

I’m the kind of person that will always pick myself back up, dust myself down and get on with it, but something really helped me put it into perspective yesterday….. An e mail hit my inbox from Brad Geagleys blog which made me smile……

The exact words that lifted my mood were……

“But the drive to write, the compulsion to report, the urge to arrange words for the simple desire of communicating your thoughts, is natural only to born writers. Really – who would wish to spend their time alone most of the day, locked in your head, trying to accurately describe the visions you see that seem to exist somewhere between your eyes and the computer screen…? Isn’t that like schizophrenics trying to accurately describe the voices they hear?”

I hope Brad doesn’t mind me quoting him, but, his words gave me a great boost πŸ™‚

I do have that desire to write, I’m passionate about it. Honestly, if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have been able to write a story a day since the 1st of January! Lol

So now, when Mr Procrastination comes knocking (which he will, I have no doubts on that score) I’m just going to tell him to bugger off, or, better still, leave him at home whilst I go out for a coffee πŸ˜‰

And then of course, there were all the lovely comments to a piece of flash fiction I posted yesterday. Thank you so much if you commented, you made me smile πŸ™‚

Today’s prompt turned into a story about a young guy being sexually harassed by his older, married, female boss πŸ˜‰

  1. Like the movie Horrible Bosses. Jennifer Aniston’s character was sexually harassing her employee. Good movie by the way. Writers gotta write.


  2. Graham Greene called it the writer’s curse…this need to observe and wonder and ask what if…there’s nothing we’d rather do but sometimes we’d rather do anything – absolutely anything – than commit ourselves to paper. Well, whoever said life was going to be easy….
